Expanding RX2660 Capacity

Dear All,

 

I would like to know if I can additional CPU to RX2660 server. If yes then what is the maximum limit ?

Also, the server currently has 16 GB RAM. Can you please let me know how many additional RAM is supported by the H/W and in general how many slots are available.

 

Sorry but this is a very generic question since I do not have access to my environment at this time so I am unaware of my server configuration.

 

Thanks

Mangalam

There are two ZIF sockets available for processor installation.

This system has 8 memory slots and you can install 8 x 4GB = 32GB maximum memory.

Re: Expanding RX2660 Capacity

Thanks Dave for you

 

For RAM, it is clear. However for CPU, I am still confused. I read in Wiki "The 2U rx2660 server is based on the zx2 chipset and has support for one or two 1.6 GHz Montvale or 1.42/1.66 GHz Montvale CPUs"

 

Does it imply I can have a maximum of 2 CPU only in RX 2660 server ?

Thanks a lot. I just did that a few mins back and got the answers to my questions.

Thanks again for your time...

 

Also just to re-confirm i believe the CPUs are hot swappable. Correct ?

I see "hot" mentioned with fans and storage, not CPU sockets.

According to the User/Service Guide the Server must be powered off to replace or add  a CPU.
